Encuentros + Festivalitos Milongueros

Our events for lovers of the close embrace and traditional music are relaxed meetings without pretence or outdated seating arrangements.
At the FCA and Pequeña, there will always be a perfect balance of leaders and followers plus an additional contingent of 15% for true double role dancers of whom we are particularly proud and encourage through our work as teachers and organisers. 
There are of course some requirements which are typical for „milonguero“ events: We expect all participants to be comfortable dancing social tango in a close embrace, respecting the ronda and inviting by mirada & cabeceo. Not everyone visiting will be a professional, but our standards are nevertheless such, that one can enjoy dancing with everyone in the room!

We want our international friends to meet the dancers from our home region and newcomers to encounter seasoned milongueros. This smaller event with 140 participants takes place in the lovely Acting & Arts studio.
Look forward to great DJs of international reputation, to making new friends and to improving your dance quality in two interesting workshops.

Festivalito con Amigos – Encuentro Milonguero

Saarbrücken, Germany
October, 21-23, 2022
October, 13-15, 2023 

The FCA is a private event by invitation only. The first edition in 2008 was one of the primary international meetings for close embrace dancers in Europe. In the beginning it was a festivalito with classes and a demo. But over the years, it transformed into a pure Encuentro with friends from all over the world. We still kept the name. 
The FCA takes place in October in Saarbrücken and usually hosts around 200 participants. The editions in 2021 and 22 however had to be reduced in size due to the pandemic and renovations in the Congress Centre. Let’s see whether we’ll enlarge it again in 2023…
If you are interested in joining some time in the future, feel free to contact us, but please be aware, that the FCA is called „con amigos“ because we actively invite personal acquaintances and will therefore only seldom have places open.
